Necoichi Cat Cozy Scratcher Bowl 

While I have chosen not to number these from 1-10 or 10-1 for good reason – there is a #1 favorite cat product we have reviewed this year and this is it. I love this Necoichi Cat Cozy Scratcher Bowl. I knew when I saw it on the Necoichi website that my cats would love it and they do. Trigg spends half his day on that dang thing. Many readers have sent photos and shared them on Facebook of their kitties enjoying it too. It’s a hit and then some – not to mention it’s just cool. If you haven’t check it out, please do by watching our review video below.

iRobot Roomba 805

I got this thing last year for Christmas (gifted it to myself) at Costco. It was not sent to us to review, but I knew when I bought it that I would buy it to review. This year, my sister got one from our parents because of the one I got! Amy took care of my cats when I went to Albuquerque this year – and she was concerned that she was going to leave my house with too much cat hair. I told her to just run the Roomba while she did whatever she needed to do. A few hours later, she called me and was like, “OMG, Jenny! This thing is awesome! I love it.” And I love it too. I love that it goes under beds – it is so perfect for me (I go in and out of spurts of vacuuming regularly) and it makes me feel like I am getting two things done at once – if, for example, I am working on Floppycats and run that thing at the same time.

West Paw Design Montana Nap Pet Bed

I have tried for years – YEARS – to review a West Paw Design product.  And the opportunity finally arrived!  I really don’t care for the color of this Montana Nap bed that they sent us (would have preferred a more neutral color to match our decor) – but I do love the product.  It is SOOO easy to vacuum.  It’s in my basement where my desktop is – where I do the serious Floppycats’ work.  Charlie has 4 beds to choose from in the basement and he ALWAYS chooses this one.  Always.  It’s light weight, made in the USA of safe materials.  West Paw makes the coolest products – just wish I could review more of their products.

Ripple Rug Cat Activity Mat 

Another product that I have had my eyes on for years – this mat, I knew, Trigg would love.  And I was right.  He just adores it, and so it’s one of those products that has become a staple in our home.  Charlie loves it too and it does a great job at collecting cat hair.  So as the cats go wild on it, the cat hair stays on the mat.  BONUS – it’s super easy to vacuum the mat when it is laid out flat – so easy to clean up the cat hair too.  I love that it helps stimulate them and provide exercise.  Many readers absolutely love it too.  It’s made of recycled plastic bottles and safe for kitties.  Win, win, win.

Dr. Catsby’s Whisker Relief Cat Food Bowl

Years ago we did a post about this bowl when it first came out on the market – and in spite of multiple attempts to get them to send me one, they never did.  Until! The Cat Connection in Dallas sent us one to review.  Man, I was excited to review it.  And excited to have it.  It is now a staple among our Pawnosh bowls.  I use it daily – it’s lightweight and I just like metal in general.  I don’t use the black rubber mat that it comes with – just the metal bowl.

Kittycentric Jumbo Cat Litter Mat

We recently reviewed the larger Blackhole cat litter mat – which I also love, but this Kittycentric Jumbo Cat Litter Mat made the favorites list because it is completely unlike other litter mats we have reviewed in the past years.  So it was different and offered another option for readers who can’t lift up a mat like the Blackhole and WooPet! ones require.  I was super impressed with this mat.  It was fun to walk on, looked good in my bathroom and helped to collect litter scatter.

Meowfia Felted Cat Cave

We have reviewed a lot of cat caves.  I think this Meowfia one is our 5th one?  I am not sure.  Cat caves are fun and cool.  But the reason this one became a favorite is because the company was awesome to work with, you guys voted for it as one of the product review giveaway winners and it’s just different with the crocheted entrance…makes it stand out from other caves.  Also, Trigg has been sleeping in it regularly since his dental almost 1 month ago.  So it’s another staple.

Neko Flies Ultimate Rod, Birbug and Kittenator

Neko Flies makes some of the best cat wand toys on the market.  And this combo set of the Neko Flies Ultimate Rod, Birbug and Kittenator is the ideal combo pack because you get the rod and two different great attachments to try out with your kitties.  My cats like different attachments and so do Amy’s cats – so chances are you will luck out with one of them if you get the combo set.  I love that cat wand toys provide exercise which helps a kitty stay hungry.

Kittyo Cat Camera and Treat Dispenser

This product was just fun – pure fun to review and fun to mess with my sister when she was staying at my house and watching Charlie and Trigg when I was in Albuquerque.  I would turn on the sound alerts (birds chirping, etc) late at night as she was going to bed and it amused me endlessly that it annoyed her.  I am evil like that.  On a more serious note, my mom and I enjoyed watching my cats and giving them treats when I was gone at our annual garage sale.  And I also enjoyed seeing my kitties daily when I was gone in Albuquerque.

Necoichi Raised Cat Water and Food Bowls

I loved these bowls more than I thought I would.  Charlie actually just broke the food bowl – he was eating out of it and I put some potstickers into a hot pan and the sound of the sizzle scared the beejeszuz of him, and he bolted out of the kitchen, knocking over the bowl and shattering it.  So we now just have the water one left.  I keep it filled with fresh water daily.  I love the little lip it has to help you not spill – clutzes like me appreciate those fine little touches.  They are great bowls – I like their design, shape and color patterns.

    that was so great! i love seeing the products but i love more seeing the cats and Jenny and the cats. the email with the picture of Charlie on the Necoichi bowl scratcher and bed is so cute i can’t stand it! his little face is just so precious! i want one of those roomba’s sooooo bad!! and gawd do i need it. i think my cats would be scared at first but then i think they would want to play with it too. i wonder if they think it’s like the “undercover mouse” come alive!? hahaha! great products, great reviews,and information, wonderful entertainment and always such a treat to see those amazing cats.

      i know, those roombas are awesome. i have tried and tried to get in touch with irobot – but they are unresponsive to my inquiries – which is not impressive, to be honest.

      my cats aren’t big fans of the roomba – i have tried to get them to sit on it – they won’t. charlie does sometimes bats at the spinning thing – but backs up if it gets too close. i am glad he does as another reader told me that her ragdolls didn’t run away from it and it ran over their tails and was a big medical expense. i am glad mine are somewhat afraid of it as a result.
